The RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and (EU) 2015/863 establishes rules and restrictions on the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). The hazardous substances controlled under RoHS include lead (Pb), mercury (Hg), cadmium (Cd), hexavalent chromium (Cr-VI), polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), and four different phthalates (DEHP, BBP, DBP, or DIBP) above threshold limits. Per the Directives, EEE means equipment that is dependent on electrical currents or electromagnetic fields to work properly or equipment for the generation, transfer and measurement of such currents and fields.
Castlebar Corporation supplies tungsten carbide blanks and preforms. Our products do not contain any of the listed hazardous substances nor do we produce any EEE’s. As a result, the RoHS Directive is not applicable to our business, as of the date of this statement.
We will do our best to keep you updated in the future if our products are subject to the RoHS Directive in the future.
